The Key to Easy Asthma Diagnosis is in the Blood

Thumbnail

Using just a single drop of blood, a team of UW-Madison researchers has developed a faster, cheaper and more accurate tool for diagnosing even mild cases of asthma. This handheld technology—which takes advantage of a previously unknown correlation between asthmatic patients and the most abundant type of white blood cells in the body—means doctors could diagnose asthma even if their patients are not experiencing symptoms during their visit.

DNA Looping Damage Tied to HPV Cancer

Thumbnail

It’s long been known that certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) cause cancer. Now, researchers have determined a new way that HPV might spark cancer development– by disrupting the human DNA sequence with repeating loops when the virus is inserted into host-cell DNA as it replicates.

Scientists Discover Brain’s Anti-distraction System

Thumbnail

Psychologists have presented the first study to reveal that our brains rely on an active suppression mechanism to avoid being distracted by salient irrelevant information when we want to focus on a particular item or task.

3D Cell-Based Models for Regenerative Medicine and Drug Discovery

Two-dimensional (2D) cell cultures have provided a number of breakthroughs for understanding human tissues and diseases, as well as for discovering and testing new drugs. However, 2D cell cultures have limitations, such as limited cell-cell and cell-matrix contacts, flat cellular morphologies and a lack of realistic mass transfer gradients.

Diverse Gene Pool Critical for Tigers' Survival

Thumbnail

New research by Stanford scholars shows that increasing genetic diversity among the 3,000 or so tigers left on the planet is the key to their survival as a species. Wild tigers' historical range has been reduced by more than 90 percent. But conservation plans that focus only on increasing numbers and preserving distinct subspecies ignore genetic diversity, according to the study. Under that approach, the tiger could vanish entirely.

New Technique Will Accelerate Genetic Characterization of Photosynthesis

Thumbnail

Photosynthesis provides fixed carbon and energy for nearly all life on Earth, yet many aspects of this fascinating process remain mysterious. For example, little is known about how it is regulated in response to changes in light intensity. More fundamentally, we do not know the full list of the parts of the molecular machines that perform photosynthesis in any organism.
